Town of Vail Civic Area Plan

Thank You

The 2018/2019 Town of Vail Civic Area Plan was adopted on November 5, 2019 by a unanimous vote of Council.

On behalf of the Town of Vail and the Civic Area Plan project team, we would like to say thank you to the Vail community for a record level of public participation and community engagement. With over 750 active participants on Engagevail.com, in addition to ongoing involvement from stakeholder groups, adjacent property owners, and public input at open houses and meetings, we achieved a record level of community engagement in a master plan process.

Thanks also to our project team including 4240 Architects, Braun Associates Inc, Trestle Strategy Group, Economic Planning Systems, and Russell + Mills.

Next steps in the implementation process include in-depth market feasibility analyses for certain uses detailed in the three options contained in Chapter 3 of the 2018/2019 Vail Civic Area Plan and site-specific design work for the Charter Bus Lot, Dobson Ice Arena, and the Municipal Site.

    The Civic Area Plan is gaining momentum as a final draft plan is scheduled to be tentatively released in late August or early September, with formal review by the Planning and Environmental Commission scheduled to occur in this fall.

    The Civic Area Plan will be the result of a series of community engagement activities, expert input, and Town Council's updates, that happened since the long-range planning project was initiated last December. The town-owned properties in the study area include Dobson Ice Arena, Vail Public Library, Lionshead Parking Structure, Charter Bus Lot and the Vail Municipal Site.

    The civic area plan is a predecessor to future site planning processes, during which decisions specific to each site will be made. Following the Town Council update #6 on August 6, 2019, we have prepared a short presentation providing information on where the Civic Area Master Plan is headed. Please follow this link to read the presentation and provide a brief input on the draft Master Plan concepts.

    Thank you for your feedback!
